Heck even Tony Snell probably would'nt play if Deng didn't get traded but like what the title of the thread, Bulls NEED better shooters, Jimmer provides that and it's not like he's a very weak defender.....
It has nothing to do with Jimmer's game. It has everything to do with Thibs game.
Plus, who is to say what the Bulls need? Everyone keeps throwing this around. Bulls need this, Bulls need that. If we're winning games now, then it's not anywhere close to being a need, it's about being a wish, or a want. This plays in Jimmer's favor, because it buys him time.
